Years ago, juvenile court was often called “kiddie court” because kids would be charged with minor offenses and because they were under 18 they would often go before a judge say they were sorry, write an essay, maybe pay a fine, and nobody would ever know. Those days are gone.
Now Juvenile Courts across the State of New Jersey have become far more serious hearing young men and woman charged with charges ranging from robbery, drug distribution, shoplifting, and assault. The charges are serious and the consequences could result in jail time and large fines.
Juvenile cases are hearings are conducted in Family Court and services of an attorney is mandatory by law.
